You should have kept them in your pocket and kept your mouth (keyboard?)
shut.  Next time, when you are boiling, go take a shower, relax, get a
good night's sleep and then think of a more constructive way to go

P.S. If you are wondering "who the hell is he?", the answer is "nobody":
I've posted once or twice over the past year, but I've been mostly
lurking, trying to learn a few things. I don't know much about the
technical matters but I can see a disaster coming as well as
anybody. All I'm trying to do is avert it, but I can't do more than
point out it's here. It's up to you (all of you) to steer the discussion
into more productive channels.
